Now our fears are boldly glaring at us, and if this
confirmations of this report is anything to go by,
then there�s definitely trouble in paradise as the
Lagos State Government on Friday said two
persons out of those who had contacts with Mr
Patrick Sawyer, the dead Liberian Ebola victim
had manifested symptoms of fever. Dr Jide Idris,
the commissioner of health, made this known to
newsmen on the update of the country`s first
Ebola case in Ikeja.

According to Vanguard, he said, the two persons
were among the 70 contacts being monitored and
investigated for any symptoms of the disease by
the state government and other partners.
�Our Rapid Response Team is currently tracking
all contacts of persons exposed to the dead
passenger with Ebola virus. �The contract
tracing team is following 70 contacts of the EVD
case and linking them to clinical support when
needed. �Two suspect cases had fever, they are
under observation and so far have tested negative
to the virus.
�The monitoring of suspect cases will continue
until the end of them period of 21 days from their
exposure to the victim,�� The commissioner
said a deceased body was recently brought to
Nigeria from Liberia, explaining that the
government was investigating if he died from
Ebola.
The commissioner urged residents to collaborate
with government in checking the Ebola threat in
the country by reporting suspected case for
government`s intervention. While saying diseases
thrived well in dirty environments ,Idris urged
residents to maintain clean body and environment
to reduce the risk of the virus. In my opinion, we
need to confront our fear by complying with those
measures that would reduce or eliminate chances
of being infected or what do you say?
